Marrakech is made for romance, and moments from the Koutoubia Mosque and the exotic thrills of Djemaa el-Fna marketplace, Riad El Fenn is the place to enjoy this colourful city.


With just 21 rooms, it feels intimate, with endless places to hide away together. There are three pools, so guests can spread out, as well as a private cinema, glorious hammam and spa. Breakfast on the roof terrace, scented with roses and lavender, is a lovely experience, unfolding lazily over a few hours.

By night, the thrills of the city are spread out like twinkling jewels in a bazaar, although with a hotel as beautiful as this, we won't blame you for staying cocooned within the ancient walls of your room.


WOW FACTOR: Room 19 has a private roof terrace with a glass- bottomed plunge pool from where you can soak up the views.
